  1. Mutual assistance agreements for public services have existed from at least the mid 1970s to my personal knowledge. The legislature passed a law (1977?) which gave municipal police full police powers and immunities responding to crimes committed in their presence anywhere in the state.
  2. @Mrs. Peel smaller towns often share radio frequencies with am adjacent town or towns. There are also county wide and state wide police frequencies. I didn't look at the bordering towns but the town this happened in has a patrol division of 27 officers for its 10 square miles. They probably only have 3-5 of those officers on the streets at the time of the incident. The incident appears to have been called in as taking a report of suspicious activity that had occurred. Most likely one officer responded to the call. The suspect car went by as he was taking the report. I looked at a map and the distance from where the chase started to the Route 46 exit from I80 is about 2 miles. At 60 mph that takes 2 minutes. I'm sure that speed was exceeded. The short answer to your question is many police departments have fewer people on the street during late hours. That plus the fact they had maybe 2 minutes to coordinate "heading them off at the pass". A combination of officers available, officers close enough to get involved, and time. Hope this answers your question.
  3. Don't need any help. You asked a question and I gave you a civil answer.
  4. Read the last line in the prohibited items list.
  5. Wildwood has a year round population of 5-6000. Not sure of the size of their PD but my quess is NJSP will be doing most of the crowd control.
  6. That $50 saving would be eaten up by transfer fees. Although having to pay sales tax on a new gun would add to it. The manufacturer's warranty comes into play too. Ruger, Taurus, and others will fix the gun free no matter how many have owned it. Some manufacturers only for the original owner.
  7. I've flown with hollow points properly packed in my checked luggage many times with no issues.
  8. There are a variety of reasons people can't move NOW? This was discussed some time ago. What's yours?
  9. Keep in mind the frame or receiver, the serialized part, is the firearm. If you have your guns completely disassembled it makes no difference if they aren't being properly transported. NJ gestapo? Have the police hurt your feelings in the past? Try dealing with police in your favorite socialist country.
  10. A lot of people think a Python is the best DA revolver made. I am not one of them. I've seen Pythons since the 70s. I remember when they were $200. A S&W Model 27 was $190. I saw several Pythons that has problems new from the factory. When you consider the numbers the Python problem rate was higher than S&W Model 10s (the most manufactured revolver). If you have a 3 1/2" Model.27 S&W I can be suckered into a ridiculous price!!!!!
  11. To or from a FFL for sale or purchase is legal in NJ.
  12. FWIW studies showed that only about 20% of infantrymen in WW2 fired their rifles in combat. The mental aspects of combat are the toughest. That's why training for SEALs, SF, Rangers, Pararescue, Delta and other Special Operators focus more on the mental than physical aspects. Yes, you have to be in great physical condition to complete this training but many who are in top notch physical shape drop out or get washed out. Then LTC Charles Beckwith started Delta he adopted about the same selection course the SAS use. The SAS Regimental commander came to Ft Bragg to help Bechwith. Beckwith asked him why this selection course of complex land navigation problems and long force marches weeded out the right soldiers for the SAS. His response? "I don't know why but it's been working for almost 50 years". Shooting ability is a very small part of fighting.
  13. Many shooters don't realize gunfighting is much different than gun games or the range. Jeff Cooper said gunfighting is 95% mental and only 5% shooting skill. I agree. I spent a lot of time at Rodman's Neck with NYPD. They have the best stats for gunfights. Years ago they realized how well someone shoots on the range has nothing to do how well they do in a gunfight. Mental preparation for combat shooting is possible. Not easy. Jim Cirillo is the best example I know of this. I've experience in both LE and the military. How one has to conduct themselves in fighting is very different. It took about 100,000 rds to kill one enemy soldier in WW2, 50,000 in Vietnam, and I've seen 60,000 in Iraq. 30% is not a bad average for LE gunfights.
  14. Okay, by the numbers, 1. Medicaid would be paying for "my kid is sick". A lot of Medicaid people go to the ER. That's $500-600 dollars a whack. Your tax dollars. 2. Reduce taking advantage of medical care? Get vaccinated. 3. Imported diseases? That's an immigration issue. At one point, if you had a communicable disease you were not allowed entry into the US. 4. How do they they stand a better chance of catching the disease? That's what the vaccine prevents. Smallpox has been eradicated in the US. Benefits? You claim you have employed people. You'd be okay with people banging in sick? I guess you're all for bringing back smallpox and diphtheria as common diseases 5. .01%? I'm okay if that eradicates a disease. You'd like to see more disease? Financial burden? What of the financial burden of getting sick. 6. Turn in your AR15? If you're so bothered by government control why are you living in NJ? Move to Somalia where there's no government control.
  15. Not permitted under NJ law. Not an exemption for a handgun.
  16. . The weight would kill it in NJ as a pistol. However if it could squeeze in like a Shockwave. Not sure if it can squeeze in under NJ law. They'd need to.submit specs to NJSP for approval. FWIW I used a MP5 while I was on the job. It was my go to for years until we got M4s. I used to keep my M4 stock at the first notch out. If you do an AR this way you only have 2 inches of barrel to make you legal (I think but you'd have to check on that). A 223/556 is much more efficient.
  17. You're asking for a refund of school taxes because of a personal choice not to get their kids vaccinated.
  18. Should everyone with no kids in school not pay that portion of their property tax then?
  19. As long as it doesn't "continuously feed" more than 10 rds it's legal.
  20. Your friend needs to do their own research. He or she is the one who's going to have to answer for their actions. When you read a statute you also have to read the other statutes that provide exemptions. Different rules in NJ for out of state LEOs when they're on duty or off duty. My understanding is an off duty, out of state LEO is limited to 10 Rd magazines and is not permitted to carry hollowpoints under NJ State law. LEOSA has no provision regarding magazine capacity. LEOSA does permit hollowpoints but NJ does not for an off duty LEO. Your friend also needs to check their agency's regulations. Many do not allow carry of an agency owned firearm out of state. If your friend is a Federal LEO different rules apply.
